First, the network has announced full season orders for The Goldbergs and Trophy Wives, bringing their freshman season episode tallies to 22.

Second, it has ordered four additional episodes of Super Fun Night.

Finally, however, the news was less than positive for Maggie Lawson, James Caan and company: ABC has cancled Back in the Game.

That's too bad, I liked Back in the Game, but I do like Trophy Wife and Super Fun Night more. So I hope Super Fun Night gets picked up eventually as well!


I thought that Back in the Game was doing good.
